Applying an antifouling paint will prevent the attachment of fouling organisms, such as barnacles, weeds and slime, to the hull of your boat – a fouled hull can cause serious problems such as drag which reduces speed, increases fuel consumption and pollution, instability due to uneven fouling and damage and corrosion to the hull.
How do antifouling paints work?
Anti-fouling paints work by delivering a controlled, steady release of biocide (such as copper) from the paint surface into the microscopic layer of water next to the hull. It is this layer of biocide that stops the fouling from settling.
Selecting the right antifouling paint for my boat
When selecting a suitable anti fouling paint you should consider the water you use the boat on (fresh or sea, temperate or tropical), the type of boat (fast, slow), type of hull material (wood, steel, aluminium, GRP fibreglass) and a paint that is compatible with the paint or antifoul already on the hull.
With the application of marine anti fouling paint you can prevent the attachment of any fouling organisms such as barnacles, weeds and slime to the hull of your boat. With a fouled hull you will begin to experience serious problems such as drag which reduces your speed, increases your fuel consumption and pollution, instability due to uneven fouling as well as damage and corrosion to your hull. If you have this problem, or want to prevent this type of problem then we here at Promain can provide you with only the very best fouling paints that are available on the market. These antifouling paints can stop the fouling from settling to hull and will make sure that you don’t encounter any of these problems.
Our range of marine antifouling paints work by delivering a controlled and steady release of biocide from the paint surface into the microscopic layer of water that is next to the hull. The layer of biocide is what stops the fouling from settling on to the hull and therefore ensures that you don’t experience any problems. When it comes to selecting a suitable antifouling paint you should take into consideration what type of water your boat is used whether it is fresh or sea, temperate or tropical, whether your boat is fast or slow, the material that your hull is made out of as well as making sure that the paint you use is compatible with the paint that is already on your hull.
If you have any questions about the marine antifouling paints that we have available then make sure that you get in touch with us and we will be more than happy to provide you with all the answers and advice that you need. Here at Promain we would never sell any products that we wouldn’t be happy using ourselves as well as making sure that we provide only high quality products that we know do the job you want them too.
